Make sure your Solar Eclipse glasses are safe to use!

 


 

The 2017 Solar Ecipse is coming soon! And as we previously blogged, it’s incredibly important to protect your eyes and only look at the eclipse through special-purpose safe solar filters.
 

Many media outlets are reporting that imitation solar glasses are being sold that do not meet standards. Be sure to verify that your glasses are safe. Some glasses are even labeled with the ISO logo but actually are not certified by ISO. Be sure to read the American Astrological Society’s article on how to double check the glasses you have purchased (or are about to purchase).
